I'm able to create wiki categories columns, my problem is there are several wiki categories selections I want to delete or edit their name, but its seems that there is no option to do so. I can only add a new tag in to the list but not delete nor modify them.

Could anyone please help.


  • Do you mean meta tags when you mention Wiki Category Selection? – Mohit Mar 31 '15 at 12:56

I had the same problem but I just found out how! I'm using SharePoint 2013, and doing this on an enterprise wiki site.

Site settings > term store management tool > find your categories in the left column (mine was all the way at the end, in the site collection folder)

When you hover/click on the term, there should be a triangle that allows you to drop down and select delete.

enter image description here

Hope this helps!

  • PS: If you want to just edit the category name, you can just double click on it in the normal "page edit > categories > add new item window" – Melissa Lim Jul 8 '16 at 5:50
  • Hi Melissa, Thanks for your solution. I still can't get it work, I guess may be because I have an older version of Sharepoint. There is no option for me to get to the drop down you shown. – Harry Duong Jul 12 '16 at 0:23
  • Actually, I got confused. I'm using Office356 SharePoint, not sure if its the same as SharePoint2013 – Melissa Lim Jul 12 '16 at 9:08
